Austin-Smith:Lord appointed on conservation project by Bristol City Council
Austin-Smith:Lord has been appointed by Bristol City Council and Bristol Building Preservation Trust to undertake the Concept and Developed Design (leading to an HLF Stage II bid submission) for the Grade II* Listed Lower Lodge Gatehouse in Bristol.
The historic building, which is currently covered in a protective shroud, was originally constructed in 1805 in the Gothic Revival style. It used to be the main gateway to the Grade I Listed Ashton Court Mansion, however it is now un-used, derelict and on the Buildings at Risk Register. Once restored, it will become a Community provision accommodating the Public and the adjacent Ashton Park School.
